“Being of mixed heritage can be challenging, sometimes confusing in a shortsighted world. Not being black enough to be black, white enough to be white, and not quite Asian can leave one feeling some place in the middle of nowhere. As soon as I realized I didn’t need to fall in to other people’s boxes to make them feel more comfortable, I became ‘independent by default’ an individual in the world with an identity not defined by someone else. The truth is I’m all of it.”
What a beautiful way to sum it up.
